GE’s chairman and CEO Jeffrey Immelt told the Web 2.0 Summit attendees that he’s not happy with NBC’s primetime performance this season, the Los Angeles Times reports.
"I hate being No. 4," he said in response to a question about whether the network’s performance led to the discussion about selling a controlling stake in NBC Universal to Comcast. He didn’t say it did, adding that "I assume we can be No. 1 again” and noting that GE is still “quite comfortable" owning NBCU.
